Our Pick: The Boat People @ The Viper Room (Doors: 7:30 PM)
Tonight LA is deprived of particularly noteworthy shows. Jon Brion will be playing here and Princeton will be playing there. We've got the second night of Canadian singer-songwriters Tegan and Sara's sold-out four-date stint at the Henry Fonda Music Box. And for the second night this week the newly-renovated Palladium will be hosting hip-hop. If we had tickets, then we'd probably stay for the Roots and pass on the Heroes. But for the first time in a very long while, we suggest heading over to the Viper Room to catch Brisbane-based the Boat People. They'll be blasting their exemplary brit-pop tunes tomorrow night as well, but why not be among the first in LA to see them?
